so just how long does the native Tumblr export typically take?

I haven't yet looked into the potentially helpful python script that [personal profile] odditycollector linked in the comments to my last post, but I did start the backup export option Tumblr provides yesterday. Only it seems to still be "processing" now.

Mind, I do not have many Tumblr posts, just 81. For comparison I have over 2500 posts here. So I am not a heavy Tumblr user. And yet, the site seems to be unable to export even this few. (My long defunct side Tumblr [tumblr.com profile] jamesmcavoywithsloths in its run actually got to 600 posts, which still isn't that many, and Tumblr is "processing" that as well.)

Is their backup just broken right now, because everybody is trying to use it?
